This is a film I greatly admire for the dedication involved in creating such a lavish, vibrant and textured film, all in one continuous shot. This commentary does not disappoint, as anecdotes abound about near disasters that would have halted filming or uncertainties that the crew corrected on the fly, or just pushed through on good faith. The film itself is admirable, but I do not speak Russian, nor know much about Russian history so learning more about the filmmaking techniques employed in its creation makes this commentary my preferred audio option for viewing this film.
